Contribution to the study of electromagnetic calorimeter with PbWO{sub 4} crystals in the CMS experiment at LHC; Contribution a l`etude du calorimetre electromagnetique a cristaux de PbWO{sub 4} de l`experience CMS au LHC

Abstract

The Higgs bosons can be observed in the [90-130] GeV mass range in the channel h -> {gamma}{gamma} if a high resolution electromagnetic calorimeter is used. The needed performances are met in the Pb W O{sub 4} crystals. This thesis is devoted to the study of the first Pb W O{sub 4} crystals (23 cm length) and their associated electronic equipment. Of crucial importance it was found to be the behaviour of these crystals under long radiation exposure. The understanding of the radiation effects, the crystal growth procedure mastering and the realization of a green light monitoring system of high performance were successful results obtained in the study described in this thesis. A rather high energy (0.6 % at 100 GeV) and position resolution was achieved by using a APD readout. In addition, the prototype of a final readout chain of large dynamic range and low consumption was built with very encouraging results. Concerning the APDs it was established that increasing the active surface and reduction of exceeding noise factor F improves significantly the stochastic term in the energy resolution. Besides, a complete readout chain comprising current preamplifiers, a linear compressing (multi-slope) system and a fast ADC (40 MHz), were  More>>
